Among other things the pandemic has profoundly affected the way young people spend their free time. How has this affected young people’s mental wellbeing? How can organised activities keep running? How can we ensure the accessibility of leisure activities?
Join us for a Zoom discussion on Wednesday 24th February 17–18 UK time with:
Juliette O’Donnell, psychology student, a mentor and member of Galway Community Circus. Galway Community Circus gives opportunities to young people to live their best life by supporting their physical, mental and social well-being.
